artists Debbie Locke and Sara Dudman devised a series of drawing workshops and invited visitors to Newark Park to join them in an informal, inquisitive and entertaining series of drawing processes. This opportunity was of particular interest to families with children and those who wanted to explore innovative methods of drawing. Debbie and Sara provided a rolling programme of activities and participation opportunities which people dipped in and out of as they visited the workshops held in the summerhouse. These activities included making drawing machines and wind powered kinetic mobiles, tracing movement using portable camera obscura and using GPS technology to draw whilst walking.
